Newsmax TV will celebrate the life of actor Charlton Heston in airings of a special documentary.

The recently premiered “American Moses: The Charlton Heston Story” details the rise of the struggling young actor from the Midwest, a World War II veteran who went on to make his name in Hollywood and around the globe.

"American Moses" will re-broadcast at 10 p.m. ET Tuesday on Newsmax TV [More Info Here.]

Heston rose to meteoric fame playing Moses in Cecile B. DeMille’s “Ten Commandmants,” the epic film of the Biblical story of the Exodus of the Jews from Egypt.

Chuck Heston played every role imaginable, from the Roman slave "Ben Hur" to Taylor in "Planet of the Apes," in more than 100 films that spanned a career of six decades.

One of Hollywood’s most vocal advocates for civil rights, Heston later saw how the movie industry had turned its back on traditional American values.

Eventually, he would break from his movie star pals, leave the Democratic Party, become a Republican, and fight as one of America’s great cultural warriors.

In 1998, the actor assumed the role of president of the NRA and may be remembered best for his declaration that his own guns would be taken from his “cold dead hands.”

Winner of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Heston died in 2008 from
Alzheimer’s.

He was more than a Hollywood legend, but an American original who devoted his life to the country he loved.

See American Moses: The Charlton Heston Story at 10PM ET Tuesday on Newsmax TV via Directv 349, Xfinity 1115, Dish 216, Uverse 1220, Fios 615, Optimum 102, Spectrum (see channels), Cox, Suddenlink, WOW!, or More Channel Info Here.
